Products obliged to be reported

Notifiable chemical products are those products whose customs tariff numbers are on the list of customs numbers in Annex 1 to the Chemical Products and Biotechnical Organisms Ordinance.

If you manufacture notifiable chemical products in Sweden or import or transfer these into Sweden, you must report such activity to the Swedish Chemicals Agency.

If the annual volume per product is at least 100 kg, you must also report the products and the amounts.

Information for foreign companies

Suppliers providing composition information to their customers

In some cases, the company obligated to report their products to the Products Register does not have access to the composition for the products. For example, a Swedish company importing a product into Sweden from a foreign supplier is obligated to report the product, but the foreign supplier is the only one that has access to the product composition. In these cases, the foreign supplier can send their composition directly to the Products Register, without the customer having access to it.

The information about the product composition is called a Product-in-product (PiP). Once it is registered in our system, it is given a registration number, a so called A- number. The A-number can then be used as a reference to the product composition by the foreign supplier in communications with their Swedish customer in order for them to fulfil their obligation to report the product properly.

At the present, the reporting of a PiP is done with a paper form.
